9:33 am
64 in gaithersburg. 72 in fredericksberg. annapolis cooling down, 66 now. and leonardtown 68. our winds shifted out of the northwest gusting to about 25 miles per hour. that lets us know the cold front has come through. you might be able to pick it out on the satellite radar. can't see much of the a little cloud cover overnight. see the cloud cover. and that's it. off to the north and west, a lot of clear skies and quiet conditions. so unfortunately just no rain in the forecast here. this has been a dry weather pattern for the month of september. and it's set to continue out there for the next five to seven days. behind me is the western edge of hurricane igor. you can see it there in the visible satellite and quickly pushing off to the north and east. and the only thing we have to deal with are the waves. our forecast great, 80. a lot of sunshine this afternoon. winds will lighten up out of the north at about 5 miles per hour. later tonight -- earlier i said open the windows, you might want to keep them closed. 54 in town, cool one overnight.

9:37 am
win. that's made it possible i think. i'm very motivated as well. so being deaf has -- does play into it and it has some advantages and disadvantages. i don't have the pressure of people behind me. i don't hear them. so that doesn't bother me. but it doesn't matter being deaf, it's all in my heart and it's what i want to do and what i dream about. >> reporter: what is your message today. i know you are speaking with some students here. what is the message you would like to get across to them and all children out there, anybody watching today? >> well i want to inspire them for sure. let them know that deaf people can do anything. it doesn't matter. they just can't hear, that's all. but you have to believe in yourself, you have to surround yourself with good people and be motivated. you have to work hard. if you set goals and are willing to work hard, your is possible. ome true and >> reporter: anything else you would like to tackle after this
